I just can't say enough good things about my experience with The Ruston Chapel and the officiant Jan. My husband and I fell in love with the chapel as soon as we laid our eyes on it. It was everything we were looking for for our small intimate wedding. It's absolutely perfect in every way. Jan's expertise and personable personality help make our planning for the big day stress free. Our wedding day was everything I imagine. Our ceremony was touching and memorable not only for my husband and I but our guests as well. I had so many of my guests comments on how beautiful everything was and how Jan's service moved them. After the ceremony our license was submitted promptly (thanks to Jan) and waiting for us in mail when we returned from our honeymoon a week later. The only down side to my experience is that it had to end. Thank you Jan for everything you truly are heaven sent.

I don’t think words are enough to describe the incredible experience we had working with Debbie and her AMAZING staff at The Ruston Chapel. I planned a wedding from Arizona and Debbie had multiple solutions to every issue that arose during the planning process! We wanted a small, romantic, and intimate wedding and Debbie and her staff absolutely catered to our wants and needs! The options for centerpieces, linens, and decorations were a helpful with staying within our budget and our reception was beautiful. The location caters to couples who want beautiful photos at the waterfront and/or Point Defiance Park as they were both a short one to two minute drive! We are 100% statsified with our choice to celebrate our wedding day at The Ruston Chapel!
